Here I gooooo!

photo taken by my son last week, as I went to gather dinner in the garden. He's lobbying for his own camera... and making a good case!

I'm off to go eat cake, dance under the stars, drink wine... and turn 40! All with my sweet family and good friends at my side. Doesn't seem so hard, yet! See you in my next decade... ahem... Monday. Happy weekend to you! Pin It

  13. Happy Birthday! Wishing you health and happiness in your new decade.

    And tell your son, "What a picture!" He has captured you looking so carefree yet on a mission.

  14. If your son got that picture of you I think he needs his own camera. That is a good image. Just tell him to make sure he makes a million and loves what he does with it. :)

  37. This is a gorgeous picture! Well done to your son. And happy birthday! I feel like every year gets better don't you?

    Jealous of the cute books and light sweater and all that lush green. We have been living in the UAE the last year, in the desert, and it has been unbearably hot lately AND has not rained for many months. I long for rain. But we're coming back home in 2 weeks! It better rain.
